Plunging temperatures are no excuse for letting your standards slip. Get the better of tricky trans-seasonal weather with FW19’s must-have piece: a statement coat. What makes for a truly head-turning coat? Sculptural cuts, distinctive details, floor-sweeping hems and sumptuous fabrics are guaranteed to add intrigue. Take your styling cues from Danish street-style star Pernille Teisbaek and give a delicate dress year-round appeal by pairing it with a striking cocoon-shaped coat. If you’re looking to elevate a low-key look, follow French influencer Anne-Laure Mais’s lead and let a bright leather trench coat add a touch of drama to daytime denim. Waist-cinching styles such as these create ultra-flattering definition, lending your looks an air of femininity, so seek out similarly sculptural silhouettes. Color shy? Don’t despair – Caroline Issa’s covetable charcoal coat proves that muted shades can be just as impactful. If you opt for an over-sized style, just be sure to keep your outfit beneath sharp by finishing with clean-lined accessories – heeled winter boots and a top-handle bag will stop the look from teetering into unpolished territory.
